The expert in water resources, Ramadan Hamza, confirmed today, Thursday, that Turkey has water reserves that cover Iraq’s needs for many years, calling on the authorities responsible for the water file to negotiate in this regard.
Hamza said in a televised interview, which was followed by the "Information" agency, that "Turkey has enough water reserves to cover Iraq's needs in the coming years, and the responsible authorities must go with a negotiating delegation to agree with it on this file."
He explained that "governmental studies indicated that Iraq does not need to build new dams," stressing that
"the governorates south of the capital, Baghdad, are not suitable for constructing dams."
Hamza pointed out that "the Kurdistan region seeks to build dams in order to preserve the water reserves," noting that
"the geographical environment of the region is ideal for building new water reservoirs and dams." End/25
